Q.The focal length of a biconvex lens is 10 cm.Find the radius of carvature.When we apply the formula R=2f,we get 20 cm,but if we apply the lens maker formula we get 10 cm(taking R.I.=1.5) .Please explain these contradictory results.Please help!!!

what is refraction?
 
 
Refraction: The change in speed of wave as the ray of light goes one metirial to another causes the ray deviated the incident direction. "The change of direction is called refraction"...

The bending of lights path from one medium to another medium is called refraction due to this we see pencil bent when immersed in water

Refraction is nothing but the change in direction of a wave due to a change in its transmission medium .so these is called refraction.

the focal length of a plano-concave lens is -10cm, then its focal length when its plane surface is polished is?
 
 
When Plane surface is polished then it bahave like a concave mirror and it focal length will be - 10 cm Regards, NIrmal Singh Askiitians Faculty

A flint glass prism and a crown glass prism are to be combined in such a way that the deviation of the mean ray is zero. The refractive index of flint and crown glasses for the mean ray are...
 
 
Sol. Given that, Refractive index of flint glass = μ base f = 1.620 Refractive index of crown glass = μ basec = 1.518 Refracting angle of flint prism = A base f = 6.0° For zero net deviation...

why is A.C. voltage preferred over D.C.
 
 
It is preferred for the transmission of electricity because AC can be transformed. It is more efficient to transmit electrical over over long distances at higher voltages and lower currents,...
